GH Python Remote is a package to get Rhinoceros3D/Grasshopper and Python to collaborate better: connect an external python instance to Grasshopper, and vice-versa.

Project Description

Connect an external python instance to Grasshopper, and vice-versa.


Requires a Python 2.7 installation, not compatible with Python 3.
Requires rpyc, plumbum.
  1. To use from Rhino/IronPython to external python:
  • Install rpyc in external python with pip install rpyc from the command line. This will install the plumbum dependency.
  • Install ghpythonremote in Rhino/IronPython by copying the source code to %APPDATA%\McNeel\Rhinoceros\5.0\Plug-ins\IronPython (814d908a-e25c-493d-97e9-ee3861957f49)\settings\lib\ghpythonremote, install in Rhino/IronPython by
  1. To use from external python to Rhino/IronPython:
  • Install rpyc in Rhino/IronPython by extracting the rpyc sub-directory from the source code to %APPDATA%\McNeel\Rhinoceros\5.0\Plug-ins\IronPython (814d908a-e25c-493d-97e9-ee3861957f49)\settings\lib.
  • Install plumbum from its source code the same way: extract the plumbum sub-directory (found in plumbum-1.x.y.tar.gz\dist\plumbum-1.x.y.tar\plumbum-1.x.y\) to %APPDATA%\McNeel\Rhinoceros\5.0\Plug-ins\IronPython (814d908a-e25c-493d-97e9-ee3861957f49)\settings\lib.
  • Install ghpythonremote in external python: put ghpythonremote folder in the same folder as the python file being executed, or in the Lib folder of your python installation (by default C:\Python27\Lib).
